Room 31 were very busy last week as we held both a Junior and Senior assembly celebrating ‘Healthy Eating Week’. Intelligent scientists showed us how much sugar is in some of our favourite treats. The results were shocking! Eating too much sugar can lead to tooth decay as Sally told us in her story ‘Oh I wish I’d looked after my teeth’. The food and drink items found at the top of the food pyramid contain very little nourishment. They should only be eaten as a treat! We should all try and eat a balanced diet which means eating the correct amount of food from each of the food groups.
We really enjoyed our assembly and we hope that everyone in St. Mary’s continues making healthy choices for as the saying goes – Is fearr an tsláinte ná an táinte!
